arizona maternity and family photographer.
associate shot only;
“My name is Alana, and I’m the associate photographer for SBP. I photograph the mass majority of the outdoor family and maternity sessions that you see on her page, while she edits and delivers you the final product. We’re working as a team to open some additional availability for SBP this year, so take a peek if you’re looking to capture some sweet memories with her signature style!”
what a family or maternity session is all about;
it’s about CAPTURING THIS STAGE IN YOUR FAMILY, WHETHER IT’S EXPECTING YOUR FIRST CHILD, OR CAPTURING YOUR BABIES EXACTLY AS THEY ARE RIGHT NOW.
I’M NOT LOOKING FOR THE PERFECTLY POSED SHOT. IF THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE AFTER, WE MAY NOT BE A MATCH, AND THAT’S OKAY.
I WANT TO SEE THE SUN HIT YOUR BABY’S HAIR AND CAPTURE IT AS THE WIND TASSELS IT. I WANT THEIR SCRUNCHED NOSE AS THEY BELLY LAUGH FROM TICKLES. I want the smooshed cheeks from mom’s kisses, and the excitement from dad’s airplane.
that’s what I’m after.
I want all the little memories you never want to forget, not the perfect posed christmas card picture. i will still make sure to get one of those ‘everyone look at me and smile’ shots, but it’s not my end goal.

frequently asked questions
First and foremost, please know it’s okay for them to be shy. I have kids, I completely understand it. Just trust the process!
Second and most important, please do not use the time during your session to discipline your kids. I’m going to ask them to do silly things. It’s okay if they don’t *listen*. We want their real personality to shine through and as long as they’re being safe, it’s okay to be a little naughty. Just take a breath, and smile. It’s going to be just fine!
I only shoot outdoors October-May, otherwise it’s just way too hot.
The only exception to that is maternity, since it obviously can’t always be scheduled specifically during that time. Maternity sessions are best to be scheduled between 30-34 weeks pregnant.
The locations I use are central to North Phoenix, I prefer a select list of locations to ensure the style is consistent with my work.
Following booking I will email out a style guide to help create cohesive outfits that complement each other, without being too matched.
Yes! I will completely direct your family into prompts to create the images I’m aiming to capture. These poses are going to encourage interaction with your family to create those candid images we love!
